Stats


  • Braga are undefeated in 8 of their last 9 home matches (Primeira Liga).
  • Braga are undefeated in 7 of their last 8 home matches against Porto.
  • Porto are undefeated in their last 6 matches.

Head to Head


Porto have a 112-26 advantage against Braga with 30 draws in 168 matches.

Braga Form


Braga have struggled to string wins together this year. Just when they look like going on a run, they suffer a setback which usually comes against a Top 3 club.

They currently sit fourth on the table, one point behind Porto which makes this a huge game.

Rui Duarte’s side ended April with a 3-1 defeat at Benfica, unable to hang on after Ricardo Horta gave them a half-time lead.

The Warriors bounced back by winning 4-3 against Casa Pia, Abel Ruiz scoring in the 88th minute after they were reduced to 10 men. 

Braga won 3-2 at Vitoria de Guimaraes in the local derby last weekend. Bruma equalised before Ricardo Horta put them ahead, Rony Lopes coming off the bench to score a dramatic winner in added time.

Braga Injuries & Team News


Centre-back Paulo Oliveira and winger Álvaro Djaló are available after suspension.

Winger Roger Fernandes has been demoted into the U23 squad after a contract dispute.

Porto Form


Porto have had a turbulent season and are desperately holding onto third spot with one game remaining.

Sérgio Conceição’s side beat Guimaraes 4-2 on aggregate to reach the Portuguese Cup final which is their only chance of a trophy.

The Dragons ended April with a heartbreaking 2-2 draw against Sporting Clube de Portugal, conceding in the 87th and 88th minutes. They won 3-0 at Chaves where the hosts were reduced to 10 men in the first half.

Porto are coming off a 2-1 win against Boavista in the Invica derby. They fell behind before the visitors saw a man sent off, Zé Pedro equalising in the 81st minute and Mehdi Taremi converting Francisco Conceição’s cross in the 97th minute.

Porto Injuries & Team News


Centre-backs Ivan Marcano and left-back Zaidu Sanusi are gone for the season after suffering cruciate ligament injuries.

Centre-back Pepe is doubtful here, if he is unable to play expect Otávio and Zé Pedro to start in the heart of the defence.

Right-back João Mário could start ahead of Martim Fernandes. 

Ivan Jaime, Jorge Sanchez, Andre Franco and Toni Martinez continue to be left out of the squad.

Verdict

Braga do their best work at home where they are unbeaten in seven of their last eight games against Porto. The Dragons are holding onto third spot and will want to keep it that way, a draw on the cards in Portugal.
